What is this Called?


Recommended Posts

The two ends are cow hitched. Its possible to laboriously reeve the line all the way through the entire tackle, but in this case all they did was take the hooks off, cow hitch, then put the hooks back on. But let me share my opinion about using photos of museum ships as reference: Little kids love to play with the rigging on museum ships and if allowed to would cast off every coil and tangle all the lines. So museum ships do things like the technique shown in the photo to keep the lines secured. This is NOT how an actual carronade would be found rigged on a working ship. Also that whit line hanging down is poorly coiled, a real sailor would never allow the coil to touch the deck.
